  1. Newest picture. #dogsloveklipsch I post more on FB because there is no photo size restrictions and just thought I would share. Nad 777 v3 and SVS sub are amazing upgrades.
  2. That’s why you have to pay attention to the model number. They bring out Black Friday only TVs that look the same, but are actually a different lower model so the sales price is not really a sale. They still have the same TVs they usually do mixed in and can have good sales on those too. You have to be careful witch are witch. Some TVs are on sale at there lowest price or close to the lowest price.
  3. I got a Panasonic 55” plasma from a sweet old lady moving to England on FB market place with 6 months of a 5 year geek squad warranty remaining for $250! The only thing i can suggest is keeping an eye out on slick deals especially since Black Friday is coming up. They always are looking for the best deals on the new oled TVs.
  4. I like 60 hz for my RF-7 IIs, they can handle it and the rest of the lower bass is directed to the sub. I have a similar set up with the RF-7 IIs and and SVS pc12 plus subwoofer.
  5. You are not alone, I felt like that for 10 years with my Onkyo and audyssey. Once I moved to Nad with Dirac calibration, problem solved. It is a night and day difference. I’ll give you an example, watch the beginning of Star Wars Last Jedi and there is this scene where a ship flys by and shakes the counter and it is all coming from the center channel. With audyssey, it sounded so quiet and uneventful. With Dirac, there was a rumble and bass and clarity. I actually took note of that scene where as before it didn’t sound like anything special. My only advice with audyssey that helped the issue because I was reading the FAQs and really couldn’t find a solution is to play with the microphone height. I know they say to put the mic at ear level, but also look at the center height. Ear height was higher than my center speaker, and when I lowered the mic to be in line with the center, it went from audyssey setting the center to -12 to -10, closer to the front mains. My front were set to -8 each so I bumped up the center to -8 to match and it helps. You can also play around after audyssey runs and increase the center a few dB to your liking. Also, I find audyssey can over correct, so look to see if there is something audyssey is trying to correct for. Maybe a bad reflection point? Good luck.
  6. Welcome! I’m in central Florida as well. I have the RF- 7 IIs paired with a NAD 777 v3 and an SVS PC-12 plus cylindrical sub, similar set up to what you want. Great choice! Love mine for movies, shakes the house for sure. Music is great with the NAD and RF-7 combo for sure. In the back I have 4 Rs-52 II surrounds and it is fantastic. Talk talk to @MetropolisLakeOutfitters, I got my SVS sub from him and he has the best prices around, especially on the new RF-7 IIIs and Forte IIIs. Only other thing your can consider that comes to mind is the Forte III
  7. So far so good. I got a umic 1 mic and a stand and ran Dirac live. Like the sound so far. I was considering the Marantz 8012, but ultimately decided to go with the Nad. My main deciding factor was I had an Onkyo 805 with audyssey xt and I noticed some things I liked, and didn’t like. I liked how it seemed to envelope the more and the sound seemed to extend from speaker to speaker and have a wide soundstage and good transitions. What I didn’t like was audyssey always setting my speakers with high crossovers, and the surrounds and center seemed to lack bass. Also, it seemed to quiet the speakers too. Sometimes the surrounds were hard to hear because the front over powered them, or it quieted the front too much because of a bad reflection point. Then, it always set the center way too low. This is with me going from the synergy, to reference, to RF-7 IIs and a dorm room, to an apartment to a house over 10 years. Different rooms, different speakers, always had these quirks. So, I thought about the Marantz but it would just have audysse xt 32 and thought why not try Nad with Dirac. It instantly seemed to solve my issues. Nice and clear center channel with good bass. The ships zoom by in Star Wars and has bass to it. My sub was having trouble with the low notes in the DC or marvel movies and now it sings and shakes the house. I kid you not I was shocked with the kick *** dts intro. The bass was crazy good. The highs are so controlled on the Klipsch and it has like a bounce to the high notes. I thought I would miss the power of my Onkyo 805, but it was noting without proper set up. The Nad I’m listening at lower volumes because the center is clear and properly adjusted. The surrounds have great presence. Music is more enjoyable to listen to. The Onkyo had a more in your face bright sound, where the nad is more controlled on the highs. I was reading on there site it may have to do with the power the Nad has. Hope that helps with your decision. You may want to check eBay as I have seen safe and sound selling the 777 v3 refribished or world wide stereo is where I got mine and they will give you a price over the phone. Just check to see how close it is in price to the 758 before you purchase.
  8. Amazing beginning DTS MA intro ....shook my whole room.
  9. Bill, You are welcomed to take a listen if you are ever in the area. I was reading this review and it compared the Anthem to the NAD. It seemed to indicate the NAD was a little more beefy in the amplifier and plus all your praise about it helped make my decision. https://www.soundstageaccess.com/index.php/equipment-reviews/904-nad-t777-v3-av-receiver
  10. I won the $200 gift card from youthmans channel a few months back and upgraded from my Onkyo 805 to the NAD 777 v 3. Right out of the box it was clear, balanced and did great with the highs on my Klipsch and my room. Love the fans at the bottom, runs super cool compared to the Onkyo 805 which could fry an egg. Hardest part of the set up was syncing to my computer to confirm I had the latest firmware...after that, set up was quick. I ran Dirac. Didn’t notice a huge difference because out of the box it sounded great to begin with. Noticed difference instantly from the Onkyo 805 because the NAD got the center and surround channels right from the beginning. So far, awesome purchase. Thought I would share.
  11. The beginning rain scene....great bass and awesome surround effects and thunder
  12. It’s funny. Everyone liked the RF-82 IIs more then the Best Buy Synergy series but when I got them, the high end drove me crazy. When I upgraded to the RF-7 IIs the top end was a lot better and didn’t bother me. It really is personal preference. If you can listen to both, that would be best. I have the RF-7 IIs and like them a lot. Big sound and great look.
  13. 1st thing on my wishlist if I get a new house ! Needs room for a popcorn maker too!
  14. I agree. I found IT to be very enveloping sound especially the beginning rain scene. Also, haunted hill house had amazing sound. The ghosts banging felt like it was coming from all over even above. I just have a 7.1 system, no atmos.
  15. Den of thieves, super 8, IT, a quiet place, clover field and haunted hill house on Netflix just to name a few
  16. I thought I was going to see your name Bill as the one that picked it up !
  17. Keep in mind that is an amplifier and you will still need an avr to drive everything. For example: Marantz 7011. It has audyssey xt 32 room correction and should be enough power to hold you over. Then you could add a second sub and amplifier down the road. Of course there are other brands like Dennon, Anthem, Nad, Yamaha Onkyo that have similar models. Do you have any Avr currently?
  18. 😮 good luck! They look gorgeous
  19. Do you have any experience with Dirac? Is the nad a warm sound that compliments Klipsch?
  20. I’m looking at these for a new receiver: Arcam avr850 Marantz 8012 Anthem 1120 Nad 777 v3 Why? I was looking for something other than audyssey to try like Dirac or Anthem room correction. I always heard great things about Klipsch and Marantz so I have that on my list as well. Maybe one day I’ll get one and can expand on my experience with it. But it for now I have an Onkyo 805 and it is high on my list of all time favorite receivers. It has Audyssey XT and great power. I also had a Harman Kardon 745 and it had a nice warm sound. I would have kept it if not for the quality issues with it.
  21. Agree. If budget permits, you could get two RF-7 IIIs and that’s it. They have dual 10”woofers and you can add on from there. Getting the center and sub, then some surrounds. Talking to Cory is a must for any new Klipsch speakers, he has great service and prices. You could also look at the used market and wait for an RF-63 or RF-83 like Wvu80.
  22. So we all agree bigger is better...just have to decide if you want bigger woofers (250c) or a bigger speaker (440c).
  23. So much for a few days! Congrats
